To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, this event has been canceled.  We are trying to convert our events to a remote platform when possible and will announce updates as we are able.  You can sign up for our weekly newsletter here to stay informed of changes and new opportunities to remotely engage.


Yale Center for Business and the Environment is excited to host Mark A. Davis for a lecture this spring.

Mark Davis is the founder and President of WDC Solar, Inc., a minority-owned solar installation company located in Washington, D.C. that aims to ensure low-income communities have a stakeholder interest in the solar industry. Mr. Davis in conjunction with the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility ("DCSEU"), created a low-income solar program designed to offer free solar systems to low-income residents who meet specified income guidelines. As an adjunct to this program since 2011, and at no cost, Mr. Davis has trained low-income men and women to enter the field of solar installation. In 2015 Mr, Davis was recognized as a Green For All Climate Champion.

Estimated in-person attendance is 30 people
